Failure – a final report
So, what about Malathon 2018? Sadly not much, specifically I finished 20 out of 42 miniatures, it was not even close. It‘s a pity, but after finishing nine miniatures in weeek one, I suffered a really bad lumbago. And if you don‘t know how to posture because of the pain it‘s a bad idea to sit down and paint miniatures for hours.
And so the only thing I could do was to take my brushes in week four and try to get things done. Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault gave me a perfect opportunity for this, but in the end it wasn‘t enough to finish the Malathon. So what, I‘m pretty pleased with the miniatures I managed to paint. Some Freebooter‘s Fate pirates for my good friend Nils (who has started a pretty cool miniature project with Mr. Hurley of „Mr. Hurley und die Pulveraffen“ by the way…). And the complete Nightvault starter set, even if I didn‘t manage to paint the Arcane Hazards (aside from priming them).
But the next Malathon will come. Since I‘ve got a „small“ project with my pile of unbuilt and/or unpainted miniatures (pile of shame/opportunities, call it what you will), I‘ll take part for sure next year. Until then I‘ll paint just for fun.
